I am a city child - Eloise at The Plaza
On a recent trip to NYC, I ended up spending some time in Midtown. And found myself close to The Plaza Hotel. I, of course, couldn't help myself and went to find the Eloise painting that is adjacent to the Palm Court. You can see that above. I didn't stop for tea in the Palm Court, but did wander down to the lower level and perused the Eloise store - the sign you can see below.
I'm more of an Eloise guy versus a Home Alone 2 guy when it comes to the Plaza. But, the folks running the hotel sure give Home Alone 2 a little bit of billing, but not nearly as much as the Eloise story. Who knows...maybe one day, we'll be like Charlie Sheen. But without the trashing of the room. And the tiger blood. And the whole #winning thing? So, maybe nothing like Charlie Sheen. Rather...(or Rawther as Eloise would say) more like just a guy who stays at the Plaza in the Eloise suite. Bucket list stuff, right?
Think this might be my fourth 'historic hotel' that I've covered here on the blog? Most of which occurred in recent months. The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. The Cloister at Sea Island. The Adolphus in Dallas. And now The Plaza here in NYC.
